Viña Santa Rita Chardonnay Reserva 2010

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Reserva Chardonnay 2007 - International Wine Cellar/ Pale yellow. Subtly leesy nose displays scents of pear, melon and floral honey. Fleshy orchard and pit fruit flavors are complicated by a smoky quality, picking up sweet cantaloupe and peach on the back end. Pretty complex for the price point, and finishing with good breadth and cling.

Santa Rita was founded in 1880, by a distinguished entrepreneur of those times, Mr. Domingo Fernández Concha in the area of Alto Jahuel where the main installations of the winery are currently located. From the very beginning, he introduced fine French varieties, winemakers and the most advanced winemaking techniques. From the end of the XIX century until the mid 70´s, Santa Rita developed under the ownership of Mr. Vicente García - Huidobro, father of the famous Chilean poet Vicente Huidobro Fernández. In 1980, the Grupo Claro acquired the Santa Rita property, giving a strong impulse to the enterprise in all of its scope, introducing great technological improvements and wine elaboration techniques unknown in Chile at that time. At the end of the 80´s a great expansion period for Santa Rita starts, sustained by the great momentum experienced by its exports and the excellent reputation acquired by its products, which obtained important awards and worldwide recognition.

Reserva Chardonnay 2007 - 4+ Stars, Restaurant Wine/ A full bodied, crisp, moderately intense wine, with complex, delicate aromas/flavors (pear, pineapple, roasted nut, vanilla, and grapefruit), and a long finish. Excellent value.

Reserva Chardonnay 2011 - Sante, Excellent By-The-Glass Choice/ This well-made Chardonnay offers abundant aromas of white peach and fresh pear, over pineapple, kiwi, and lemon cream, with just a touch of buttered toast. Round and ripe on the palate, with green apple, pear, and subtle spice, followed by a crisp grapefruit middle and a lemon and mineral finish.

Reserva Chardonnay 2007 - Sante/ Mineral nose with flinty citrus and ripe flavors of pear, grapefruit and light butterscotch; light bodied with a lingering finish. Sweet-and-sour pork.

Reserva Chardonnay 2009 - 88 points, Wine Advocate / The 2009 Chardonnay Reserva saw 25% of the wine aged in oak sur lie with batonnage, the balance in stainless steel. Aromas of toast, melon, pear, apple, and hazelnuts lead to a nicely proportioned, medium-bodied, ripe wine with excellent depth and concentration. It is an excellent value that over-delivers in a big way.

Reserva Chardonnay 2010 - 87 points, Wine Spectator/ Fresh and cut, with a creamy edge to the pineapple, Honeycrisp apple and citrus fruit that picks up spice and chalk on the finish.
